Ball Pull (Tee-Pull)

We provide a unique process that allows branching of tube assemblies with fewer weld joints, and better flow characteristics.

Benefits include:

  • A smooth internal raised transition for improved flow.
  • A stronger, full penetration butt-welded joint, versus a cope and weld configuration.
  • Elimination of internal particle entrapment at the weld joint.
  • Complete elimination of two butt-weld joints per branch location. The benefits are a more even welding surface 360 degrees and improved aesthetics.
  • Tees can be formed to reduce branch diameters as well as match parent OD tube or pipe diameters.
  • SF Tube has the expertise to form TEE JOINTS in a variety of materials including, but not limited to, Stainless Steel, Mild Steel, Aluminum, Titanium, Inconel, Hastelloy, Stainless Steel Pipe, and Copper to name a few.
  • Formability, standard perpendicular T-pulls can be produced in material wall thicknesses up to and including .250 inch, more complex ANGLED pullouts can be accomplished to 45 degrees using unique tooling.
  • A multitude of in-house tooling exists at SF Tube ranging from 5/16 OD tube to 5 inch (5.563 OD) pipe.
  • In-house tooling capabilities allow us to build special tooling requirements to your specific needs.
